Robust, Flexible Metrology for Factory Environments

The proprietary tip/tilt in the head provides unmatched user flexibility for production setup and inspection. By coupling the tip/tilt feature with an optical path in the microscope head, Bruker has coupled the point of inspection to the line of sight, independent of tilt—a tremendous throughput and ease-of-use advantage for production metrology, where both surface tracking and simplicity is critical for rapid inspection of varying surfaces.


Fully automated benchtop design with integrated air isolation

Contour Elite I includes proprietary vibration-resistant measurement technology and a unique air-isolation base design to deliver accurate measurements in the most demanding production conditions. Contour Elite I is ideally suited to “measure-on-demand” industrial requirements — all within a compact benchtop design.

Accurate Metrology Plus High-Fidelity Imaging

Contour Elite I provides the best available lateral resolution in an industrial 3D optical microscope, giving it an enhanced capability to quantify edge variations even on the smallest structures. Contour Elite’s high-fidelity imaging reveals specific surface details that otherwise would be difficult or impossible to see and enables users to segment data based on color or grayscale information to rapidly select areas of interest and collect critical metrology data from these specific regions.

  • Real-time automated measurement optimization
  • Extensive library of filters and analysis options
  • Customized analysis reporting

Intuitive Analysis and Ease-of-Use

Contour Elite’s streamlined user interface maximizes user efficiency and simplifies measurements and analyses. Contour Elite is not only simple to use, it is also the most comprehensive and fully featured 3D surface metrology platform available today.

Contour Elite I makes this all possible through Bruker's Award-winning Vision64® software and a streamlined staging design provide intuitive analysis capabilities and ease of use. Contour Elite I has everything needed for production measure on-demand applications.
